Recipe for Caramel Corn

2 Bags of unsalted microwave popcorn
In a small sauce pan, melt 1/4 cup butter-no margarine.
1/3 cup brown sugar
100 grams of unsalted cashews.
1 dollop of milk
Bring to a gentle boil then spoon onto small batches of popcorn to gently coat.
Bake on cookie sheets for approx. 30 minutes-turning once half way through cook time.
Allow to cool-popcorn should be crunchy like Crackerjacks
Some people like a bit of molasses, but the flavour isn't as sweet.
Enjoy!

Oops! forgot oven temp

Try 275 or 250 degrees if your oven runs hot like mine.

I couldn't help but notice there is no caramel in your caramel corn...

Caramel is just cooked sugar.

Ah. Just checked wiki. Two things with the same name. There's caramel and then there's caramel candy.

Its the butter and brown sugar together that makes the caramel's sweetness-getting hungry?

There's milk in the recipe above... although I can't say I agree with using "a dollop" for a liquid measurement. A dollop is what can hold together on a spoon and get plopped off with one good whack. That's what a dollop is.

You could probably substitute a "blup" of milk.

I use the uber-precise "glug".

Generally if using milk in recipes I use the imperial measure: splash
